The focus is on the nuances of behavior, political strategies, common wisdom, mentor like advice, and the subtle codes, which, when paired with other management skills, will bring increased success on the job and throughout the your career. It does not matter which type of library you are in -- management is management, and wisdom is wisdom. This book is the insider's view of vital actions, behaviors, and strategies to succeed in every type of library. The content is based both on author's experience after a long career in several types of libraries and from observing the experiences of others. Inset into the book are pearls of wisdom from other directors, managers, and faculty who are answering the question: "What is the one piece of management wisdom that you would give to anyone who wishes to become a library director?"
